Acetylcysteine

Drug Info for acetylcysteine

Acetylcysteine inhalation is used along with other treatments to relieve chest congestion due to thick or abnormal mucous secretions in people with lung conditions including asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and cystic fibrosis (an inborn disease that causes problems with breathing, digestion, and reproduction). Acetylcysteine is in a class of medications called mucolytic agents. It works by thinning the mucus in the air passages to make it easier to cough up the mucus and clear the airways.

Acetylcysteine is a generic drug used to reduce mucus in patients who suffer from certain lung diseases. The average cost of Acetylcysteine is about $27 for 30 mL of 20% intravenous solution. However, you can use our free OptionRx coupon card to save significantly on Acetylcysteine prices at a participating pharmacy near you.
